- Who can host a screening?
Anyone! Locally hosted screenings can be run by student groups, associations, (sports) clubs, retail shops and even individuals who have an entrepreneurial spirit. For any kind of host, we will find a suitable screening option.
- Where can I host a screening?
Whether gyms, theatres, school auditoriums, cinemas, town halls or even churches: A number of venues can be a suitable location for your screening. We encourage you to get creative and find a location that is appropriate for the occasion of your event. As long as proper technical equipment is available or can be arranged, anything is possible.
- What are the costs?
We charge a license fee to enable you to show the current program, depending on the type of event. If applicable, additional booked services will be charged.
- How can I cover the costs?
The financial model of your event is up to you. To be able to meet your financial and/or fundraising goals, you will be in control of the ticket prices (if any), box office revenue, and pricing for local sponsors.
Local sponsors are a great way to create community engagement and cover related costs. From our experience, local businesses are often enthusiastic and willing to help promote the event.
- When can I host a screening?
You can run your shows anytime from mid November to August. If there are any regular shows in your country, hosted Shows will be released after these.
- Will the EOFT Team support me?
As an independent tour host you are completely in charge of putting on a great event! This includes finding a venue, ticket sales, and promotion. Of course, our Team will be supportive at your side, and you will benefit from our many years of experience.
Other than that, you can book additional services, if needed.
- What can my own EOFT Event look like?
Usually, our movie screenings are accompanied by a supporting program, consisting of moderation, a raffle and the presentation of our (local) partners. The most successful events include some form of community interaction. This could be a local band playing before the screening, a contest, or a local sports legend being interviewed. Also, it can help to hire a photographer to capture the most memorable moments of the event to use in the future.
